The Kidney Foundation of Canada is people working together for a common cause. We are volunteers, individuals living with kidney disease, donors, and staff members — from all walks of life, all across Canada.
The Kidney Foundation of Canada exists for the enhancement of kidney health and the reduction and, if possible, the elimination of the burden of kidney diseases. The primary beneficiaries are people at risk of or affected by kidney disease.
The Kidney Foundation provides:
- Hope through research and its translation into the treatment, prevention and slowing of the progression of kidney disease;
- Support through access to care, comfort, and transplantation;
- Empowerment through knowledge, capacity building and community;
- Engagement through an informed public and effective public policies and strategies.
The Kidney Foundation relies on its extensive network of qualified volunteers working in partnership with staff to deliver its programs and services throughout Canada. The Kidney Foundation is a registered charity under the Income Tax Act and is incorporated under the laws of Canada.
The Kidney Foundation of Canada is proud to be a member of the Imagine Canada Ethical Code, a set of standards that ensures both financial accountability and best practices for soliciting and managing donations.
